The Patriots hosted Desjarlais for a tryout Wednesday, per the league's transaction wire.

Desjarlais was released by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League on Tuesday. He was the fourth overall pick in the 2019 CFL Draft. Many of Desjarlais' snaps came at left guard during his career with the Blue Bombers.

The Patriots signed six players, including wide receiver Kristian Wilkerson, to future contracts earlier this month.
